Jennifer Lopez has spoken out about her ‘devastating’ divorce from Marc Anthony in 2011. JLo revealed that it was her children, twins Max and Emme, who got her through, ‘Back then the pain hurt so much, but I didn't want what happened to finish me,’ she said.

The singer told Glamour magazine, ‘When you're this little scrappy girl and things happen, you just cry yourself to sleep. But when you're responsible for two other human beings and their lives and emotional well being, that's a biggie. 'You're constantly wondering: "Am I doing the right thing here?" '

Jennifer and Marc are still friends, she is now dating dancer Casper Smart, whilst he has been seeing Topshop heiress Chloe Green for a year. Speaking about their current relationship she said that she still loves him, ‘as the father of my children and as a friend,’ but added, ‘That doesn't mean that we were meant to be in marriage forever, though.'

But Marc wasn’t Jennifer’s first big break up in her time as a star she has dated some of the most famous men in the world, here we take a look back at her dating history...

P Diddy 1999 - 2001

One of the most blinging celebrity couples of all time we loved Jennifer Lopez and P Diddy - he was then known as Puff Daddy. The pair split in 2001 but are still friends to this day. 

Chris Judd 2001 - 2003

Dancer Chris Judd was Jennifer's second husband - her first was Ojani Noa. The couple first met when he was asked to direct her video for Love Don't Cost A Thing. Although they were together for a couple of years their actual marriage only lasted for nine months. Oh dear. 

Ben Affleck 2002-2004

Ah Bennifer, how we wished that one had worked out. Jennifer and Ben Affleck were one of Hollywood's biggest power couples of all time, even going so fair as to get engaged. They were meant to get married on Valentines day and went as far as planning the whole wedding - however, it was called off at the last minute. Luckily they will forever be immortalised in her Jenny From The Block video - something which Ben has since admitted that he regrets doing.
